Acer today revealed a dual-boot netbook that offers users the benefits of both Windows XP and Android.
Dual-booting netbooks aren’t new. In fact, we've seen quite a few of Linux/Windows ultra portables over the last couple of years. However, with so few Android/Windows netbooks around, the idea has never really gotten old for us and Acer is offering a price that's almost too good to resist – for those who can get it, that is.
The 10.1-inch Aspire One AOD255 was introduced at the Taipei Computer Applications Show earlier on today and packs the modest specs we're used to seeing in netbooks: Intel's Atom N450 CPU; 1GB of DDR; a 160GB HDD and a 3-cell Li-ion battery. Nothing too special there, but the price is a pretty attractive $300.
Unfortunately, PC World reports that this is a special attendees-only show price. Us plebs will have to fork out around $375 for the dual-boot machine. Unfortunately, the extra $75 on top of the fairly modest specifications makes this a little bit steep in our books, even if it does run Android.
How much would you pay for the AOD255? Let us know in the comments below!
